Biography & Memoir • 28 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

Bill Weideman's warm, clear voice sounds like your favorite college professor telling a story about Abraham Lincoln—only this story is 28 hours long. Even Weideman's occasional halfhearted attempts at Southern and British accents enhance his presentation, making it seem personal and immediate. In this solid one-volume biography of Lincoln, Ronald White sticks close to the documentary evidence. He emphasizes Lincoln's skill and growth as a writer and speaker. Less successfully, he makes much of Lincoln's religious thought. Weideman's style and White’s fact-intensive narrative put the listener at ease with their extraordinary and often-enigmatic subject. This is the story of a man and not an era. Accordingly, a basic working knowledge of pre-Civil War politics and Civil War campaigns aids comprehension.
